Senior Fellow in Image Analysis, Nuffield Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology
Peter Hammond moved to the Nuffield Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology in August 2015 from UCL Institute of Child Health where he was Professor of Computational Biology (2007-2015). His early training in mathematics and computer science at Oxford University and Imperial College was followed by research in pure mathematics and artificial intelligence. For the past fifteen years he has focused on developing mathematical and computational techniques for analysing craniofacial growth and development with particular emphasis on teratogenic and genetic influences.
